In 1987, the Byrne Corporation acquired the development rights for Big Canoe. In 1997 the Byrne Corporation joined forces with Greenwood Communities and Resorts as Big Canoe Company, LLC. In the years since, they have shaped and executed the master plan for the community. A key to Big Canoe Company’s financial viability has been its conservative management which includes zero debt.
How fortunate it is to be in a community that is still on course with its vision and most importantly today, financially sound. We are also unaware of another residential resort development that has an active developer such as Big Canoe Company, working jointly with the POA for over 23 years.Big Canoe Company continues to invest in the community through its financial commitment to infrastructure, neighborhood development, home construction and marketing and real estate sales programs directed toward resale and new product.
The Big Canoe Property Owners Association creates value for owners and visitors via its adept management of amenities and delivery of exceptional customer service. With over $40 million in assets, the POA has been judicious in maintaining Big Canoe’s facilities and infrastructure.
An example of excellent management is the ISO insurance rating of 4. Not satisfied with a rating of 5, the POA and Developer worked together to lower the rating; only 15% of all communities in the United States have a rating of 4 or lower. Having an ISO rating of 4 is great for the Big Canoe property owners who save hundreds of dollars when it comes time to pay for homeowners insurance. Local ratings outside the gates of Big Canoe range from 6 to 10 (worst).
Simply put, the developer and the POA ensure that the community is current, fresh and viable.
As developers, our number one priority is to maintain the high standard by which the Big Canoe community is being developed, built, marketed and sold.
